, auto sales were up 13% last month from a year before. among the u.s. automakers, ford sales were unchanged, g.m.'s were up 1.5%, chrysler reported a 12% increase. there hasn't been enough good news like that on the economy. the recovery, of course, is painfully slow and one of the biggest reasons is the recession in europe. the 27 countries of the european union add up to the world's-largest economy, but they're reporting record unemployment. in spain, unemployment among young people is 50%. mark phillips went to bars low that to see what happens when an economy goes into freefall. >> reporter: spain can be a deceptive place. in the early autumn sunshine and in the markets groaning with foodstuffs it's difficult to tell this is a country with a collapsing economy and unemployment rate of 25% that threatens to take the rest of europe and maybe even the united states economy down with it. but wait until they close up at barcelona's boqueria market and follow the porters out back to where they dump the trash and you get a different impression. in spain these days, one person's garba

story of the day. the benghazi situation. u.s. officials knew within hours of the consulate attack. dagen: fox news is following that story for us in washington. catherine, what is so significant about these e-mails? >> good morning. they appear to be the most significant we have seen your to date on the libyan scandal. it takes the real-time information on the attacks and those expected of being responsible. this brings the nation's most senior intelligence official and others directly into the loop. the fourth key player here is a cia player. one e-mail found that an islamist group was claiming responsibility for the attack. the reason "the group are claimed responsibility on facebook and twitter and has called for an attack on premises." it looks like terrorism right out of the gate. the initial assessment is all the more disarming to lawmakers. >> from day one is that we got pushed back both from the white house as well as the intelligent community early on. we could not figure it out. it was really strange. they never do that. >> about two days after the attack, they had a new

. >> woodruff: that last point involved the assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi libya and the death of ambassador chris stevens on the night of september 11. the administration initially blamed an anti-muslim film for inciting the trouble. more recently officials have said new information indicates it was a terrorist attack. today romney again criticized the president's response in libya. >> i want to be very clear. the blame for the murder of our people in libya and the attacks on our embassies in so many other countries lie solely with those who carry them out. no one else. but it is ouresponsibility and the responsibility of the president to use america's greatest power to shape his not to lead from behind. leaving our destiny at the mercy of events. >> woodruff: for its par, the obama campaign aired a new ad that accused romney of injecting politics into a national tragedy with his initial response to the consulate attack. >> when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, the "new york times" said romney's knee-jerk response showed an extraordinary lack of presidential characte

, and now it's got her to the doorsteps of the u.s. supreme court. one thing i'd like to agree with ms. bowie on is where the rubber meets the road is k-12 # education. the reason we have a bold argument is the big gap in the academic qualifications and various racial groups coming out of high school and first grade for that matter, and that's where we should be pouring our energy and our resources, and i want to be clear, i am by no means saying that what students of color should not be at the best universities, but if they are admitted under similar standards or even slightly different standards from the other students, they are not harmed. it's great. the problem is not whether you're a student of color. it could happen to an athlete. if you were taken into a university, it's very much less prepared academically than your classmates, it's likely to harm you. if you are well qualified, you'll do fine. >> host: next call from sandy, cleveland, ohio, democrats' line. go ahead. >> caller: [inaudible] you don't have statistics to prove that students that are admitted are in the program f
the morale of foreign troops serving in the war zone. u.s. military officials say an attack on saturday that killed two americans was especially unnerving as several afghan soldiers and possibly insurgents opened fire from several directions. nbc's chief foreign correspondent, richard engel, has been covering this war for almost the full 11 years. he filed this report from kabul. >> reporter: this woman is about to die. executed for adultery. the man she was with got off scot-free. the taliban recently filmed this video of their justice as a warning and to say they're making a comeback. some 30 miles away in the village, we saw few signs of what the u.s. would consider progress in afghanistan and no evidence that the american plan to hand over to a credible, stable afghan government will work. these village elders tell me once u.s. troops leave, a civil war will begin, and u.s.-trained afghan forces will not be able to stop it. are you preparing for this fight? are you already stockpiling weapons and ammunition and getting yourself ready? "yes, we are. we will definitely fight," he says
quarter century of u.s. independence, britain and america chased each other about questions of population. it's optimization. even as white americans claim to need enslaved africans and african-americans to people of the labor force coveted to support ever-growing numbers of the nation's people. on the continent, the british continued to cultivate diplomatic and economic ties with native americans supporting the petition from whom the united states received the greatest threat to read on the ocean burton kunkel atlantic shipping forbidding the atlantic slave trade after 1807 and harassing u.s. merchants vessels. meanwhile burton's traditional goals population limitations because usually the british fought on their small islands of their main worry was too many people. but on the seas the navy needed every hand it could find on deck avoiding the american ships provoked enormous controversy. more so since the efforts could sweep americans into british mess. in the midst of such moral and political confusion both americans and the british made better efforts to maintain the better claim to v

the friday's announcement that the deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in bengahzi was deliberate and organized. peter king of new york called on susan rice to resign as u.s. ambassador to the united nations after she initially claimed the attack on the consulate was part of the spontaneous protest after an anti-islamic video. yesterday paul ryan and john mccain slammed the administration's handling of the deadly attack. >> the response was slow, confused, inconsistent. they first said it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack if this was one tragic incident that would be a tragedy in itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture that the obama foreign policy is unraveling before our eyes on tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey that al qaeda is on the wane, everything is fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> how else could you trot out our u.n. ambassador to say this was a spon ttaneous demonstrati? >> maybe they thought that at the time? >> on
industry is undergoing a major shakeout in consolidation and it may barely survive in the u.s., even with government help. it's been brutalized in recent years by falling prices oversupply and competition from china which continues to invest heavily on solar. >> the global solar market can't support 600, you know, solar module manufacturers today, and so what you are going to see is companies in europe and the the u.s. and china and other places who can't compete go out of business. peter: a green tech research firm gtm research sees another 180 solar panel companies alone going out of business or being acquired by 2015. 27 of them in the u.s. gtm says the shakeout could shut down all u.s. solar cell and manufacturing facilities by the end of next year. lori? >> wow, important energy story to stay on top of. peter barnes thank you very much. >> so president obama and governor romney will be duking it out over their foreign policy in tonight's debate and if you are wondering how it directly impacts you, ask yourself how much you paid the last time you filled up your tank. which candid
things we are that we need in this country. i am originally from europe. i am an immigrant who was a u.s. citizen. in europe, people talk about politics and are educated about in the family. here, people are apathetic about politics. they take everything for granted because they do not realize that problems could result of the don't pay attention. whether there should be 8 for the line for people who are undecided, they are not undecided, they don't know what is going on. i saw a news item right after the presidential debate on c- span, they were doing a focus group on the undecideds. it turns out that one of the women in the focus group was an actress who was paid to be in the focus group. it just shows the extent to which people who are running once did do people into going for -- want to do people into going for what they what. -- want to dupe people into going for what they want. host: here is a comment on twitter -- here is another bad from crossroads from the karl rove group. >> obama promised -- if your family is making $250,000 per year, my plan will not raise your taxes. >> on

against murray energy sparked a federal elections commission complaint and a call for the u.s. attorney in northern ohio to investigate. these are hardly the only allegations of political pressure employers are applying in the workplace. two weeks ago, employees of koch industries received voter information packets full of company-endorsed republicans warning that "employees and conctractors may suffer the consequences of voting for president obama and other democrats." "realistically, the best they could do is file a complaint with the nlrb under nlra to voice their right as a unified group of employees." labor attorneys say this trend will likely lead to modifications on how the citizens united decision is applied to employees in the workplace. the ruling is only two years old. until then, private sector employees have far fewer protections against management retailitation than their public sector counterparts. as the presidential candidates warm up for tonight's town hall style debate, there is already a clear winner: broadcasters. more than $2.5 billion has been spent on political a
following the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> just 13 days until the presidential election and the obama and romney campaigns, they are kicking into overdrive as the candidates make their final push to win the white house. cnn correspondents are following their every move. they're reporting from coast to coast and from all the most crucial states, any one of which has the potential to decide who the next president of the united states will be. let's begin this hour's coverage in iowa where president obama kicked off a two-day coast-to-coast swing through eight states. he's calling it a campaign marathon extravaganza. likening it to an all-nighter. no surprise his itinerary consistents almost entirely of battleground states. cnn's chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is traveling with the president. >> reporter: wolf, president obama is hopping around the nation stumping for early votes and undecided voters. it's the kind of whirlwind tour you usually see in the last 48 hours before election day. the
is not falling off a cliff. the u.s. is doing a little better but all in all the global economy has slowed down and that's a reflection of that. i must say there are people in the tech industry who say it's also that we're sort of running out of ideas, that the silicon valley 2.0 is a bit playing out and we're waiting for another wave of new ideas, we're not seeing it. it may be some mix of those things, maturing industries. i know that's funny to say about things that are only five years old but in that business maybe it's true and slowing economy. i'm not super negative that we're going to just go into a recession unless we do something on the fiscal cliff. but i do believe that with a big overhang of public debt external debt, china, we're not going to grow like gangbusters and not going to see several years of great earnings growth. this moderation is very consistent with what i would expect in this point in the recovery. >> all right, we'll leave it there. great to talk with you, thanks so much. >> thank you, maria. >> ken rogoff joining us. up next, a warning to the world from a woman who
on the newly opened fastest highway in america. but first from fox this wednesday night, emails. emails show u.s. officials knew a group with ties to al qaeda had claimed credit for that it attack on our consulate in benghazi within two hours of the attack. now, fox news has learned state department emails went to officials in the white house situation room. at the pentagon, and in the office of the director of national intelligence. one of those emails reads embassy tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility on facebook and twitter and has called for an attack on embassy tripoli. that was two hours after that attack began when the consulate was still burning and five days later the u.s. ambassador to the united nations went on television talk shows on a sunday and said there was no evidence of a pre-planned terror attack. ambassador susan rice called the violence a spontaneous reaction to an anti-muslim video. well, today, the secretary of state hillary clinton said her investigators are looking into all the evidence and not as she put it cherry picking documents. >> posting something on

[applause] and i know you want the same thing for your daughters or sisters or moms or grandma's as i do. as i said in the debate, this is not just a women's issue, but a family issue, an economic issue. i also believe women should make their own health care decisions. >> president obama and romney were questioned about the lilly ledbetter fair pay act
's attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi in libya. the house oversight committee will weigh in on security failings during a hearing that's happening later today. and the state department is now saying that the attack was not a spontaneous off shoot of protests. they say u.s. and libyan security personnel in benghazi were out manned, a reasonable security presence would not have fended off the assault. u.s. ambassador cyst center stevens and three other americans were killed in that attack. senior international correspondent arwa damon went to the consulate ruins to help piece together exactly what happened. >> reporter: amid the ashes, soot, and debris, remnants of the life that was. it's all that remained in the unguarded u.s. consulate compound in benghazi when cnn arrived on the scene three days after the spleptember 11th atta. eyewitnesses told us it was a complex assault. the compound's first line of defense easily breached. according to one of the libyan guards who was stationed at the gate, armed with only a radio, the assault happened simultaneously from three diffe

's deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. according to e-mails obtained by cnn, the white house and the state department were informed of a militant islamic group that had claimed credit for the attack. this was two hours after it began. and u.s. diplomats were informing officials in washington about the unfolding assault while it was happening. cnn has those e-mails, foreign affairs reporter elise labott will discuss what they say and the possible fallout joining us next half hour on "early start." >>> a former cia officer admits to a plea deal of one charge he illegally revealed the name of the covert intelligence officer. this man will serve a 30-month sentence. he also revealed the name of a different cia officer to reporters. sentencing will all happen in january. >>> the u.s. supreme court upholds a stay of excuse for a florida man convicted of killing eight people in two separate shootings. john arrow ferguson was scheduled to be put to death by lethal injection last night, but his lawyer successfully filed a flurry of last-minute appeals arguing that he is mentally insan
on the american consulate in libya, the one that killed the u.s. ambassador and three other americans on september 11th. just last night, the secretary of state hillary clinton told fox news she takes responsibility for that attack. >> well, i'm responsible for the state department, for the more than 60,000 people around the world. the decisions about security assets are made by security professionals. but we're going to review everything to make sure that we're doing what needs to be done in an increasingly risky environment around the world. >> i think it's very laudable that she should throw herself under the bus, but, first of all, responsibility for american security doesn't lie with the secretary of state. it lies with the president of the united states. there was a sign on harry truman's desk that said, "the buck stops here." obviously there may be a sign on president obama's that he can says "the buck stops over there." >> shepard: some republicans are questioning the timing of secretary clinton's comments last evening, just hours before what analysts say could be a make or break debate fo
on wednesday, the day after the election, we may not know who will be the majority in the u.s. senate. we are looking at about 10 tossup races. a lot of these are 1 point races. my colleague pointed out that when this class of senate seats were last up that we had three states, montana, va., for. a million people voted total. those three state senate races and the majority status of the u.s. senate were decided by 66,600 votes out of 4.8 million. it was hanging by a thread. that is how close it was. quite frankly, i think there are seven races that could be decided by, pick a number, 200,000 votes total nationwide. this not only controlling the senate to but by several seed margins one way or the other. there is an enormous amount of volatility in the senate picture. we will see how it plays out. glen and fred, why don't you join me. i will ask them a handful of questions. and we will open up to the audience and let you guys ask questions. >> you are on my left. that is awesome. i have the republican on my left. anyway, thank you for joining us. i know you guys are incredibly busy. how ma
